    Oh no....gonna sneak up on you! lol
    I don't go to peoples houses to visit their house. I go to visit them! I could really care less what your house looks like. Houses are supposed to be lived in, not museums. As long as there's a cup for my wine/coffee/whatever....I'm fine. If it's dirty, I'll wash it. :)

    Oh it won't be clean. But at the moment there isn't even enough room for me to really work in my seeing room. The clear space is just so that we can make a bigger mess while we sew and chat and get up to no good. I would hate to have to put you to work before your first drink. Feel free to do any and all cleaning after that and our first hug.

    I'm proposing a OBW retreat as soon as you get to Little River Area. We'll unpack your boxes while you cook, then we'll take lots of breaks and CUT & SEW. Then we'll finish the unpacking and go home to sandwich and bind. How's that? Your hubby might want to go to work for a couple of weeks and we'll clean up the scraps and all when we get all we can do. Then he'll have a nice sane time when he gets home with no nagging to unpack.

    OR

    I'll get tables and we can cut & sew in my yard. I have a screen room and a two man tent, we can do this!

    That totally depends on how big a quilt and how big a repeat,

    OK, I am using 2 - 2 1/2 yards of each of these fabrics. The darker fabric is giving me darker colored blocks. The lighter fabric is giving me light to medium colors. I think they will all play nicely together once I get them all sewn and figure out how to use them...
    Maybe use the dark ones as a big hexagon, with the med and lights in and around LOL who knows, but when that time comes, I will be open to suggestions :D:D:D

    I was so excited about learning this, Cutebuns gives such clear directions and still I created ONE BIG FAT MESS! Would you all just look at this. Either my plates are too small (HA!), my triangular ruler is not true (HA!) or I really, really flubbed up! (duh). Look at that black one...what in the world is that?? I have no idea what I did or didn't do, but I am not giving up. Does anybody have an idea of what the hoot happened here? Please don't worry about hurting my feelings, I really want to learn this!

    Hey I just noticed something...was I suppose to have 8 layers of fabric? That would be an octagon, not a hexagon!

    Woe is me!

    Looks like an Octogon to me. What degree is your ruler? They really are gorgeous so far.

    Giggles, not that I'm an expert by any means, but I do have to wonder if your ruler is the wrong angle...that fabric is gorgeous and its going to be absolutely beautiful!

    Does it need to be 60*? I thought that a triangle ruler would work? I think the 60* ruler looks sooooo complicated.

    Since I am seeing that 4 pieces are making half of it I am guessing that itis the ruler for the octogon one. I am not sure what the angle is off hand. It is fixable especially if you have two more repeats or can get them. If you have either book. It will have the octogon in it.
